Asia Cup 2018 Final, India vs Bangladesh: Yes, it happened! The Nagin dance happened after Nazmul Islam dismissed Shikhar Dhawan for 15 runs. Soumya Sarkar took the catch at mid-off. Chasing 223 in the final, India got off to a brisk start, thanks to some delightful strokeplay by India captain Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan. Once India lost its first wicket, in-form Rayudu walked into the middle to join Rohit. But the partnership between Rohit and Rayudu did not last long as the latter was out for two runs.

Earlier in the day, Rohit Sharma won the toss and asked Bangladesh to bat first. Rohit said at the toss that he felt comfortable chasing under the lights. Bangladesh got off to a flier, thanks to Liton Das and Mehedy Hasan. The openers put on a 120-run stand before Kedar Jadhav got India the breakthrough. That wicket started the collapse as soon Jadhav struck again and the spinners got into the act choking the Bangladeshi’s. Finally, the Men in Green managed to amass 222. They could not even bat out their full quota of overs.
For India, Kuldeep Yadav was the pick of the bowlers, he scalped three wickets for 45 runs.
